One of the most important things I have learned about myself is that I am more than who I think I am. We are all greater than who we think we are. Our greatness has always been within, but we must find it.
I teach my students to believe in their greatness, so they can obtain the education they need to succeed. Not just the ability to read but to believe in themselves.
My struggle with reading has inspired me to help children & parents understand
THERE IS HOPE
I was the worst reader as a child. I stumbled through words consistently without remembering what I'd read. I found out that I was going blind. Doctors told my parents it was only a matter of time before I could not see. Processing information and understanding it was like climbing the highest mountain.
I was able to get through with endless love from family, friends, therapists, teachers, doctors, and the list goes on. The obstacles took the course of time, but I learned a lot. As I look back at the hardship of my past, it was probably the best opportunity to become the person I love today.
Now recovered and accepting life's difficulties, I have adapted to a kinder way of learning or receiving the world. I use my experiences to help other children evolve and grow in a way that their mind works best for them. Now I can share this knowledge, love, and wisdom that was given to me to benefit each child and parent I teach.
